Abstract
Occupational health, in its mission to identify and prevent work-related disorders, often relies on finding from toxicological studies. Many occupational issues, such as the exposure parameters and the mechanisms responsible for causing disorders, can only be addressed through toxicological experiments. In particular, more biological and toxicological research is needed to understand the toxicity of mixtures and the interaction between mixture components. Human data are characterized by great individual variability that arises mainly from differences in medical and exposure histories and in susceptibility. This variability makes it challenging to separate the effects of each agent, and to determine with precision the kind of interaction between agents.
